The site no longer works on Firefox, as of a couple weeks ago. It gets into an infinite loop of refreshing, so matter what you try to do. Please fix!
The Fakespot results page keeps frantically refreshing when I try to use it. Started doing this a week ago or so. Something seems to be wrong.
It provides great and unique service just with one click. I can't believe someone complains, that it takes space in the tool bar.
It just adds a toolbar button anyway. Get a bookmarklet.
edit (Apr 22): after further testing, it does work, but apparently it loads the Fakespot.com homepage first when I click the button, and then, after a few seconds, decides to actually load the Fakespot product page.
1 star off for that, and another for the 3–4 / 10 impact on framerate that about:performance shows while i'm not even on Amazon.
Doesn't work with amazon.[de/fr/it/...] so it is useless
This just adds a toolbar button to search fakespot for the current product you are looking at. Toolbar space is at a premium, and this could have just been a js bookmarklet. I was hoping for something more useful like a inline embed next to the amazon star rating on product pages.
Fakespot provides a much needed service for filtering out questionable quality user reviews. It has become apparent that users tend to over-gush, being the amateurs we are. One flaw noticed so far is that they don't provide the date of the last analysis of any product, so one tends to request a review update. This chews up time waiting for results and makes the product less friendly, cancelling out a chunk of its time savings advantage. Time stamping results can't be all that hard to do. p.s. How about a review of reviewers, too, to further improve the signal to noise ratio?
I also thought it was strange there were so few reviews so I am adding mine. This website is indispensable when shopping on Amazon to spot the products that are artificially rated positively. The addon is super simple but it saves me from having to copy every URL and pasting it into fakespot. I just wish it put the results inline automatically like some other Amazon addons like Keepa.
I use Amazon a lot! The reviews I have been suspect for a long time. This add-on will check. Highlight the https:\\ and click the button or save site as bookmark and paste in. REALLY opens your eyes to amount of fake hyped reviews and helps make your decision to buy.
Likely to become my most most valuable extension.
Many thanks to the developers!
I love this extension. I noticed it didn't have many reviews so I decided to write one. It has saved me many of times from buying a product on amazon that was 80% fake reviews. Now I always use Fakespot to check something before I buy it.
